Investment Deductions

Investment deductions.  Create tax savings from your investments – exchange your bonds.  If you own bonds that have unrealized losses, sell them for a tax loss and replace them with similar bonds.  To avoid the wash-sale rule that would make the loss non-deductible the replaced bonds may be similar, but not the same as those sold.  Example: Bonds with the same credit rating and yield and in the same industry but a different issuer.
